AQUATECH INNOVATION FORUM:
Celebrating Water’s Changemakers
1 NOVEMBER 2021 IN AMSTERDAM
This year’s Innovation Forum will be dedicated to not just the market innovations, but the innovators making it happen.
We don’t have time to wait. Sustainable Development Goal 6 (access to water and sanitation for all by 2030) is fast approaching. According to the UN, unless we quadruple our efforts, we will not reach this target.
The time of accepting sub-par, leaking and creaking infrastructure and water contamination need to come to an end. To do this, we need everyone on board. Every water professional has a role to play in making sure the innovation mindset runs throughout organisations to ensure our collective performance is continually improved.
These companies attending Aquatech Innovation Forum:
Dr Mehdi Khoury, a senior research fellow at the University of Exeter, will run a serious gaming workshop.
Water companies are increasingly using Serious Games to help in their strategic future planning and strategies, helping to link decision support systems, interactive visualisations and data science. Visitors can actively participate in “Aquatech Town”, a virtual community comprising 300,000 inhabitants. Through a series of correct decisions on the water cycle, players can help the town overcome water stress by implementing circular, energy-efficient solutions.
WATER F**CK UP NIGHT
It’s time to celebrate when things didn’t work out. Aquatech Innovation Forum kicks off with the ‘Water F**ck up night’ on Sunday evening, 31 October 2021. A selection of water-preneurs openly share experiences about mistakes and what they learned. Grab a drink, get out your comfort zone, jump in and let’s chat.
BATTLE OF THE GLADIATORS
Who can find the best Aquatech changemaker?
Our anonymous changemaker “scouts” will search for what they think is the biggest “changemaker” at the Aquatech Innovation Forum. This could take the form of an individual, a project, solution, ambition or investment.
We’d like to hear of their scouting experiences. How did they find their changemaker? What first impression did they gain? How did they choose their champion?
And then let the battle commence. The chosen changemakers (one per scout) fight it out in the colosseum in their quest for eternal glory. Final judgement and the crowning of the triumphant champion gladiator will be passed by Will “Caeser” Sarni.
Approx. 230 attendees are anticipated from the following groups
